Changing Display name in My account options settings


I am getting the error message, “You don’t have the permission to update the options you specified” when I change my Display name. My email is and I want to change the Display name from ‘info’ to ‘Paul Bloxham’.

Any solutions would be appreciated.


I’ve exactly the same problem and I’m trying to fix it. I’ll let you know if I manage to do so!


Got it!
Just go to your OVH Web section --> choose E-Mail on the left menu --> choose your account (MXPlan) --> go to E-mail accounts --> choose your account and then clic on the 3 dots button on the right --> click on Edit, and edit the Display name.

You’re done! I hope it works also for you :slight_smile:
